Teacup Chocolate Chip Cookies

Today I bring you some adorable mini cookies that I call
 Teacup Chocolate Chip Cookies. I saw the recipe here a
couple of days ago and couldn't wait to make them!

I had so much response to my Fairy Bites that I thought I'd
begin a mini cookies series!
These are easy to make, but just a little more time consuming
because you have to work with such tiny amounts of dough.

You use your measuring spoon - 1/2 teaspoon size - to measure out
your dough. There is just one secret to creating pretty cookies and
that is to add some extra mini chocolate chips to the top of the
cookies before you bake them. If you don't do this you will get
cookies that look like these below!

Not very pretty!

So, remember to add the extra chocolate chips so that you'll get 
pretty cookies like these below!

Much better! This is what I want my cookies to look like!


1 stick butter (softened)
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup white sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
1/3 cup AP flour
1 cup cake flour
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips

Mix together the butter and sugars. Add the egg and vanilla and mix 
until combined. Sift in the flours, salt, and soda. Mix just until
combined and stir in the chocolate chips. Refrigerate until firm
(or put in freezer until firm enough to work with.) Preheat
oven to 350 degrees.

Scoop by 1/2 teaspoons onto a baking sheet (I line mine with
parchment.) Bake for about 5-8 minutes or until desired
doneness is reached. 

These cookies would be cute favors at a Little Girl's Tea Party 
served in mini cupcake liners like these!

Hope this recipe gives you some ideas & inspiration
